2 Mission Statement  To plan, strategize, construct and program robots.  To compete with other college robotics teams.  To raise interest and awareness.  To help recruit interested NOVA students.  To help students study and pursue careers in the fields of engineering and computer science.

3 Community Statement  To work within the robotics community by:  Mentoring  Volunteering  Assisting established and fledging teams within Northern Virginia.  To raise awareness of robotics:  At NOVA.  Within the Prince William County School system.

4 NOVA Robotics Team

5 VEX Robotics Design System  The VEX Robotics Design System offers students a platform.  for learning about areas rich with career opportunities spanning S.T.E.M.  - Science  - Technology  - Engineering  - Math

6 VEX Robotics Design System  A VEX Robotics project Promotes:  - Teamwork  - Leadership  - Problem solving among groups.  It allows educators to easily customize projects to meet the level of students’ abilities.

7 VEX Robotics Design System  The affordable VEX platform is expanding rapidly and is now found in:  Middle schools  High schools  University labs around the globe.

8 Robotics Competition

9 Toss Up  VEX Toss Up is played on a 12’x12’ square field.  Two alliances – one “red” and one “blue”  Composed of one team each.  Compete in matches consisting of a one minute autonomous period followed by one minute of driver-controlled play.

10 Playing the Game  Each Robot begins a match on one of their Alliance Starting Tiles.  There are areas that alliances can can Score Objects -  Two (2) scoring Zones  Two (2) Goals  Alliances also earn points for having Robots of their own color Hanging from their Hanging Bar at the end of the Match.  A Bonus is awarded to the Alliance that has the most total points at the end of the Autonomous Period.

11 Scoring  Middle Zone  Bucky Ball: 1 Point  Large Ball: 1 Point  Goal Zone  Bucky Ball: 2 Points  Large Ball: 2 Points  Stashed  Bucky Ball: 5 Points  Large Ball: 10 Points

21 In Their Own Words  “Why am I doing Robotics? Well, for the last few years, robotics has been a field that is becoming a more and more important field of study.”-AB

22  “The chaotic, fun, and creative atmosphere was just right for me. I fell in love with what I was doing and I was good at it.”-KB

23  “Robotics involves a combination of math and computer science, and the concepts and applications of both.”-OM

24  “There’s something compelling in thrusting oneself in such an alien field, something that’s only increased when on a team where everyone has accountability.”- TD

25  “ When I first met the team in February of 2013, between the throes of finding inspiration and life doing its thing, I was given a great opportunity to learn something fantastic with the Robotics team.” -JS

26  “The fun part is seeing one’s creation come to life.” -MA

27  “I enjoy the fact that everyone has individual skills to contribute to the process of building a robot an their skills and knowledge can help to further our goal.” -TY

28  “Now it’s going on four years and I still love it. I even made it my major in college. STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) and robotics has helped find out what I want to do with my life”-AB

29  “I work with a team that strives towards a similar goal, to increase our understanding of the more technical side of building things.”-AK

30  “Many schools and universities only teach the theoretical aspects of engineering. By doing robotics, this allows me to develop practical skills, and put the theories I have learned into practice”-NR

31  “Overall the unforgettable experiences I had, the friends I made, and the skills I learned are the main reasons ‘why I do Robotics.’”-MR
